Troops Education for Army Morale (TEAM)

Troop Education for Army Morale (TEAM) is a psychological First Aid based intervention designed to help U.S. Army Mortuary Affairs Soldiers and spouses cope with the complex challenges of deployment and  exposure to body handling and recovery in the combat theater. Completing its second year of workshops, TEAM uses natural support systems such as spouses and buddy care based on the principles of Psychological First Aid. 2010 preliminary findings indicate that the TEAM intervention is effective in addressing  posttraumatic stress as well as other adjustment issues following deployment.
